“It is cheaper to do my hair than my pet’s!”
There are a lot of people who shy away from professional grooming because they believe it is extremely expensive. Often owners compare their own haircut cost to the cost of pet grooming, but that is not entirely fair. Your groomer does much more than trim and shampoo the hair on your pet’s head.
You Stay Still
After you understand a haircut, you stop squirming and crying in the barber’s chair. Your pet, even if well behaved, does not always behave on the grooming table; they often wiggle, duck away, and sometimes nip or scratch. Your groomer knows how to trim, shave, and handle your pet so they are not harmed during the grooming session and still come home with an excellent cut.
You Know How to Behave
When you are having a tough day, you know how to deal with the situation. Pets have bad days and good days as well, but do not have the means to tell you. Often groomers find out your pet is having a bad day when they try to nip, they eliminate, or they just misbehave. Groomers have to have the patience of a kindergarten teacher on these days, but also have to achieve the same quality cut in the same amount of time.
You Are Hygienic
Your pet’s – um – glands, ears, and eyes are cleaned by your groomer during a grooming session. You brush your hair more often than once a week, you shower more than once every six to eight weeks, and you don’t require a sanitary trim. Dealing with this is part of the job for your groomer and often they achieve this with a loving and calm demeanor.
Your Mani and Pedi Aren’t Included
What if your hair stylist also gave you a manicure and pedicure? Yet, you cannot imagine your pet returning back from the groomer with long and dirty nails.
